Wallace 食雲吞 – Ho Hung Kee 何洪記 (by Wallace)

On 11/23/2009, the Tang family had a mission to search for some foods that are hardly found in California.  Causeway Bay is a central location where you can find the best wonton noodle and “street snacks”.

Firstly we drove to Time-Square, parked and walked to Ho Hung Kee 何洪記 (a block from Time-Square) at 銅鑼灣霎東街2號.  Ho Hung Kee (founded in 1946) is famous for wonton noodle and congee “jook”.  The wonton noodle is served in small bowl and cost HK$28 each (kinda expensive when compared to the other usual HK wonton restaurants).  Please note the traditional way to serve wonton noodle is to put wonton at the bottom of the bowl and put egg noodle on the top.

We also ordered the crunchy raw fish skin served with ginger and green onion.  Of course the pork kidney/liver “jook” is a must to have.

After eating at Ho Hung Kee, we walked back to Times Square and stop by a “street side” snack shop (across the street from Times Square’s clock tower) where we found pig ears, chicken kidney, small intestine, curry fish ball, and egget.
